Book Review

pp. 41—42

In this first book of readings about school psychology, its preparation, organization, and practice, these knowledgeable editors have selected representative and highly interesting articles of generally high quality. The sixty-nine articles deal essentially with an overview of history and training, role and function, skills and techniques, unique problems and conceptualizations, and future development. The reference not only provides a view of school psychology during the late 1960’s but also attempts to provide a more secure bridge between education and psychology by stressing interprofessional communication, instructional and therapeutic approaches, etc. Although it suffers not surprisingly from awkwardness in attempting to integrate disparate research and essays, it overcomes these deficiencies with reasonable grace with its provocative selections.
